Michael Bay fills up his schedule…

Michael Bay is keeping himself busy, and it doesn’t look like Transformers is on his agenda for the time being. Transformers: The Last Knight was released just last year of course, and while that film franchise isn’t going anywhere, Bay appears to have signed up to two new projects which will keep him busy with other things for the next few years.

One project is 6 Underground, there are few details available other than writers Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick being on board, the writing duo have previously worked on Deadpool, Life, and GI Joe: Retaliation. The film is no doubt going to be a big action film, and is planned for a mid-2019 release.

Next up is Robopocalypse, which doesn’t sound like much of a deviation from all the Transformers films he’s worked on. From the IMDB page the description is as follows:

In a futuristic world where computer minds and robots are in everyday life, Mankind finally creates the first mass intelligence computer brain; Archos escapes from captivity with the intent of preserving “life” and the world, even if this means wiping out the human race in order to do so.

This film project has been around a while, with Steven Spielberg intending to direct at one point, however Spielberg eventually moved on and it seems Bay is keen to take on the film and finally bring it to screens.

Robopocalypse would likely follow up 6 Underground with an approximate 2021-ish release date, so if both films proceed Bay’s schedule is certainly full for the time being!

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
